    Norm always looked out for myself and Del Bishop or Larry Boers when we came to a shoot in Visalia. Saved us a loading table, frequently made a lunch for us, or guided us to a good restaurant for...

    I agree with 1911Nut's post on possible Northwest origin.

    Back in the 60's there was a Dr. Rod Janson that shot with the Puget Sound BR Club. I never met him, but heard of him when I started in...
  5. Barrel shape

    Remember in our Sporter class there is no barrel dimension rule, so a cylinder barrel is legal.

    I have a Sporter the can handle a straight 1.2" barrel at 19" long.

    With a light carbon fiber...

    They were .098",.085", and.089". Had one small...

    Calvin,

    I've have been BR shooting for 53 years. Started in 1969. As a newbie I didn't pay any attention to what was going on with NBRSA/IBS, but I think it involved money and who and how it was...

    Unertl scopes

    WAY back when I started BR shooting I saw a lot of Unertl scopes on UNL rifles.

    Several of the fellows had a "clamping" devise on the scope tube that locked the scope body to the front mount yoke...

    While I don't shoot 22 BR anymore, I still have 2 Burris Minis, 2 Lyman 6x, and 2 Weaver KT-6's.

    They may not be on a par with todays scopes, but were fairly light, had adj. objectives. and fine...

  16. John Fry info

    Al,

    That rifle is pretty typical of the rifles John built in the '70's.

    I remember one he did for himself where he threaded the entire length of a Rem. action. (can't remember which model)
    and...
  17. John Fry info

    Al,

    I shot with John Fry all thru the 70's and early 80's.

    He was a tough guy to beat, and along with Manley Oakley, and Tom Sitez,(sp) was one to the top BR gunsmiths in the NW Region.

    I'm...

    If I remember right the cartridge was developed by Harvey Miller. The MCR stands for Miller Custom Rifles.

    It is very similar to a 219 Donaldson except with a 6mm neck.

    Yes I remember Manley messing with the short 6 BR. I think Dan Dowling actually started it, and it was called a 6 Talldog. A few other guys messed with it too here in the NW area.
